A Toyshop Tale of Purim
Martha Seif Simpson, D. Yael Bernhard (Illustrator) Wisdom Tales Press (JANUARY) Hardcover $16.95 (40pp), 978-1-937786-75-5
Explore the history and traditions of the Jewish holiday of Purim in this modern-day tale of wisdom and courage set in a village toy shop where, just like Queen Esther, a little girl stands up for what is right. Create your own noisemaker, or gragger, from an old milk carton or make a tambourine from paper plates and join in the lively celebration, filled with food, drinks, friends, family, and lots of love and laughter.
